5 March 2012 - Migration Patterns of the Irish
28 November 2011
Regular monthly meeting of the Irish Genealogical Society of Wisconsin
Shorewood Public Library
(lower level meeting room), 3920 N. Murray Ave., Shorewood.
Pat Geyh will be the speaker.
Most genealogists want to know the route their ancestors followed as they left their homeland and traveled to and through the United States. They want to discover the possible records that their ancestors created along the way and perhaps to visit some of the places at which they paused as they traveled. Pat will discuss with us the paths of the Irish (and other Europeans as well) from their homeland and into and through North America.
The meeting starts at 7 pm.

What’s the problem with frames technology? Frames technology is a web page coding technology which dedicates different parts (frames) of the browser window for different purposes, such as a header, a list of menu choices, a display of data, etc.There are several reasons why this coding technology is not ideal, but the one which bothers this webmaster the most has to do with printing. In many situations, only one frame is printed when the viewer asks for a printout of the web page invariably NOT the one the viewer is most interested in. If viewing a website which uses frames technology, make sure the cursor is active in the area (i.e., having been clicked while located in the area) you are most interested in when you ask for a printout.
